Budapest Parliament Night BRC

Budapest by Night Parliament BRC

Picture the fairy tale riverfront of Budapest you will see during your dinner cruise: the two banks of the river Danube in Budapest are spotted with brightly lit churches, the Buda Castle on the Castle Hill, the neo-Gothic turrets of the Hungarian Parliament, the palm leaved Statue of Liberty on the Gellert Hill, the cupolas of the Art Nouveau Gellert Spa, the elegant curves of the Gresham Palace (Fours Seasons Hotel) and the soaring domes of the majestic St Stephens Basilica behind them, or the green serene landscapes of the mid Danube located Budapest Margaret Island. You will be cruising in one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites with us, and one of the twinkling treasure boxes of the river Danube. After the cruise, there is still a lot to explore on foot, like the Shoes on the Danube Holocaust memorial, or a guided tour inside the Hungarian Parliament building, Hungarian Folk exhibitions in the Heritage House, or Hungarian Folk dance shows in the Danube Palace to mention but a few of Budapest’s top attractions along the river Danube.

Budapest night views are charmingly romantic and breathtakingly beautiful as the city illuminates at night. Besides romance, the city is full of history, and telling tales of the faded glory, traces of the communist past. So your less romantic and more intellectual side can contemplate on the history of a nation, and of human fragility. But fate is the source of true beauty, isn’t it?

    Just wanted to thank you for our stunning night cruise on the Danube! It was a surprise from my hubby for our wedding anniversary, and it could not have been more romantic. Thank you so much! We have had the most scenic river cruise in our life.

  • rick kaiser

    what age do you class as an adult

    • Budapest River Cruise

      Hello Rick, adult cruise tickets are for 18 years of age or older passengers who do not have a student ID. Most cruises in Budapest has a discount price for students with a valid ID.
      Adults are 18+ aged without a valid student ID.
      18 is the legal age in Hungary when a citizen comes to age.

  • Carlos

    Do you accept ISIC international card student to get the student discount??

    Thanks
    Carlos Carranza

    • Budapest River Cruise

      Hello Carlos, yes ISIC international student cards are accepted on Budapest river cruises where special student discounts are available. Unfortunately, not all cruise programs have student tickets but most boat tours have student and child discounts. For details please check the individual description of each cruise, and see the booking form for the exact price.
